Give yourself horse legs

Seattle artist Kim Graham made herself a pair of horsey legs, and now she's making more to sell. They'll cost you about $1000 with the optional spring loaded hooves.

  1. On the one hand: the thought of running across an open field at break-neck speed in the spring-loaded version of these legs is a wonderful thought.

    On the other hand, the idea of how excited the furry crowd is getting over these legs completely ruins that thought.

  2. “Calling all centaur fetishists!”


    oh wait.. they’re already on it I’m sure.

  3. How are these good for Centuar fetishists? HELLO! These are obviously most useful for Minotaurphilliacs.

  4. This might sound kinda mean, but I want a horse to calmly walk up to her – shake its head in dismay – turn around – and then kick her into that lake.

  5. I have always wanted cloven hooves.

    Horses don’t have the split hooves though, so this is really more like cow legs or Pan legs.

  6. They’re more satyr than centaur.

    Antinous, I’ll be forever left wondering what a horny centaur version of Mr. T has to do with folk music now.

  7. The Centaur Fetish thing is ascendant.
    Dan Savage has been going on about it on his podcast for the last few installments.

    Cultural zeitgeist: ZERO

    On a barely related note; this kind of weirdness in my world makes me glad to be alive right now.

    1. After looking through many Google images for ‘centaur’, I have to report that of all the horrible ways to create an image of a centaur, creating it and then photoshopping your own head onto it is the worst.

  8. Oh man, and he’s actually not part horse, but part bull, so that makes him a minotaur? Except not, because minotaurs only have two legs?

  9. “things like this really get my goat.”

    “why does she have to be the centaur of attention?”

    “i wonder if this idea will Pan out”

  10. These are great for anyone who wants to dress up like the Tauren from World of Warcraft – the horse like species in the game. Are there conventions for those people too?

  11. These aren’t ‘digigrade’ though. Horses are unguligrades.

    Am I the only one who finds these really disturbingly wrong?

    I gather you don’t celebrate Halloween much: These would be SO awesome for a devil costume! Or a post-apocalyptic satyr…

  12. I’m sure the fetishists are working on a sexual position where two people in those getups would resemble one centaur. And no, I don’t need to see the link.

  13. for the record:

    centaur – human torso/head/arms, horse body/legs

    minotaur – human legs, bull/ram head/upper body

    anyone know if there’s a ‘taur’ for what Pan is? (goat legs, man upper body)

  14. I absolutely saw a couple with these things at SakuraCon. I don’t think they opted for the hooves, though.

    We spent most of our time wondering how they poop with those on. Do they remove them? Do they just pray they don’t fall?

  15. Anybody know the difference between a faun and a satyr? Does it just depend on how much they’ve been drinking?

  16. Satyrs are Greek; Fauns, Roman. Otherwise, there’s a lot of overlapping. They both drink a lot, a lot of the time.

  17. so when assessing the amount of agility imparted on the wearer, would one say this has good panhandling?

  18. Anyone interested in a good Centaur story should turn to the locus classicus, Ovid’s story of the battle between the Lapiths and Centaurs, in book 12 of the Metamorphoses. Lotsa drinkin’, lotsa killin’, lotsa (readerly) laughin’.

    1. Ah, that explains why the Narnia books were suspiciously devoid of orgies.

      Did you miss Voyage of the Dong Treader and The Horse and His……oh never mind.

  19. I know a lot of people will be fauning over these and making their own. But I hope she doesn’t try to copyright this idea- because you know… satyr is fair use.

  20. @#40 Antinous

    “Satyrs are also highly sexualized. Fauns not so much.”

    With Pan being the glaring exception??

  21. You’re using coconuts. You’ve got two empty halves of coconut and you’re banging them together.

  22. Excuse me, but Pan is a god. Fauns and satyrs resemble him, not the other way around.

    Io! Pan! Io! Pan!

  23. When I was a kid I used to think the knees went backwards, but they actually just have normal knees and ankles and very long feet.

  24. @ #34 Anonymous
    I saw them at sakuracon too.
    They seemed to be fairly agile moving around in them, but man did they tower above everyone else. I wouldn’t mind taking some for a test drive myself, I’m wondering if they work more like stilts or just a balanced extension of the leg.

  25. Felix Mitchell said chauvinistically:

    “that skirt does nothing for her thighs”

    So, an artist creates something unique for the universe, and instead of critiquing, appreciating, or commenting on it, you resort to sexism. It makes me feel awesome, that as a woman engineer, everything I ever create will be judged by men like YOU based on my appearance.

  26. I’ve seen folks wearing gadgets like this before, and the downside is always that they end up being too tall to do stuff. Kim’s seem to be just about the right height to be practical, which is why they’re so damn cool.

  27. (I meant @72)

    …at least that’s what he keeps insisting. For the movie, we’re thinking Ben Stiller.


  28. Yeah, I’m thinking that would work well with that dinosaur show for the veloceraptors. Pretty cool and nice work. (Not sure I’d want to wear the furry legs.)

  29. If you were a contestant on Mantracker, this would throw him TOTALLY off your trail… LMAO!! Kinda cool…

  30. JFrancis: My mind is simply too dirty to envisage a suitable location for the horn. So, I’ll be first in line for the movie!
